FPL Challenge Gameweek 36 Tips

In this article we take a look at FPL Challenge Gameweek 36 Tips. That comes in the form of some top picks and the best captain but we also bring in one of our experts to reveal his team and talk through his different strategies to navigate the round ahead.

Our FPL Challenge Gameweek 36 tips can be extremely helpful. What we provide in this article can give you the knowledge to help tackle the fixtures ahead, but more importantly give you an edge and get you a step closer to winning a prize.

What is the Challenge this week?

This weeks Challenge is ‘Shooting Stars’. Players will receive two points per shot.


As we can see, there are some nice fixtures to target this week, those fixtures include Arsenal v Bournemouth, Burnley v Newcastle, Manchester City v Wolves, Chelsea v West Ham, and Crystal Palace v Manchester United.

Top Picks

Due to the objective of the Challenge, targeting teams who concede plenty of shots could be a wise move. We plucked out some underlying stats from the last six Gameweeks which could help with that.

As we can see, Manchester United rank the worst in the league for attempts conceded in the last six Gameweeks. One player we could look to is Crystal Palace striker Jean-Philippe Mateta (£5.1m). Mateta has netted four times in his last three matches so also has recent form on his side.

Sheffield United closely follow Manchester United for total attempts conceded. However, they face Nottingham Forest, a fellow struggler.

Meanwhile, FPL managers could look to target the Burnley defence with Newcastle assets. Midfielder Anthony Gordon (£6.3m) goes into the game off the back of two double-digit hauls in his last three games. However, striker Alexander Isak (£8.3m) leads the attack so naturally becomes a better option for this specific challenge.

West Ham are another side conceding a high volume of shots recently. The Hammers have also been conceding plenty of goals and Chelsea’ Cole Palmer (£6.2m) is the favourite to take advantage of that. As we will see shortly, Palmer ranks higher than any other player for total attempts on goal in the last six matches.

Luton face Everton next up, a side who haven’t got a consistent focal point in their frontline. But, Wolves complete the worst six sides for attempts conceded and they face a relentless Manchester City next. Erling Haaland (£14.1m) will be a shoo-in for many managers this week. Haaland ranks above most players in the game for total attempts on goal this season.

We could also look at the players who have had the most attempts on goal in the last six Gameweeks.

As well as the previously mentioned Cole Palmer and Alexander Isak, we could look to Fulham striker Rodrigo Muniz (£4.5m) who faces Brentford next up which could be a great opportunity for him to get some goal attempts and maybe even score.

Bruno Fernandes (8.5m) could also be worth consideration with Crystal Palace ahead. Fernandes has also been in great scoring form recently – scoring seven goals in his last six matches.


Considering the fact that West Ham rank amongst the worst six teams for attempts on goal in the last six matches and that Cole Palmer ranks first amongst all players in the same period for total attempts on goal, it makes sense to give him the armband this week. It also helps his appeal that he takes penalties and has also managed 10 goals and two assists in his last six league matches.

Those looking elsewhere could also consider Erling Haaland and Alexander Isak.

@FPLReaction Challenge Team Reveal

Hey Guys! In this section you are about to see two different team reveals. For managers that want to play the game in a set and forget/straight forward way then my below draft could help with that.

At the back I have gone for defenders I have think could keep a clean sheet this. You’ll notice that all of my defenders have some attacking threat which could help with additional points from the Challenge.

My team is mostly filled with players who have been notching up lots of attempts on goal. I’m pretty happy with my front three and captain, the midfield could well change.

Loop Holes Draft

For managers looking to take advantage of the loop holes in the game then I have also prepared another draft.

If Pickford does well in the first match against Luton then I will allow him to auto-sub in for my flagged goalkeeper. If not, and Pickford doesn’t return, then I will upgrade him with the £9m left in the bank.

The above goes for Jarrod Branthwaite too. If he does well then he’ll be auto subbed. But if he doesn’t do well I will probably upgrade my flagged defender to Fabian Schar.

Vice captaincy is on Isak, because he if he goes big then I will allow the captaincy to switch over from my flagged player. However, if McNeil does extremely well against Luton then I will allow him to auto-sub in for my flagged midfielder, then change captaincy to another flagged player.

We picked out some of the best differentials for Gameweek 36 right here.
